A Bargain from Foillard, the 2017 Beaujolais-Villages


I drink wine every day which means the price of my average bottle of wine needs to be under $20.  I do break this rule form time to time and the 2017 Jean Foillard, Beaujolais-Villages is one such exception.  This is only the second vintage of this wine but I like it.  The wine is savory, leaning towards the Strawberry part of the spectrum, with a mineral cut.  At $22, it is a bargain from Foillard.  You may find it at MacArthur Beverages.

2017 Jean Foillard, Beaujolais-Villages – $22
Imported by Kermit Lynch.  This wine is 100% Gamay sourced from 25-50 year old vines located on granite soils.  It was fermented then aged in concrete tanks.  Alcohol 13%.  Savory and dense with flavors of strawberry that are pure and fresh.  There is some tartness with a vein of acidity.  This wine has much presence, as if there is extract, which lends to the pleasing berry nature.  It wraps up with a mineral cut and more acidity.  *** Now – 2020.
